Sexual abuse: Your right to be safe

Sexual abuse: Your right to be safe

Coming forward as a victim of abuse is emotional and challenging. By taking legal action against a perpetrator, victims are given a voice and a sense that they've been able to protect others.

Financial compensation will not change what happened, but it can ensure access to the justice and support victims need to get their lives back on track.

The case of Dr Andrew Churchyard, a neurologist from Melbourne, highlights that many victims of abuse do not realise that what is happening to them isn't normal. In most instances, former patients alleging sexual misconduct by the doctor have never told anyone about their interactions with him.

Everyone's situation is a little bit different, so if you or someone you know has been a victim of abuse it is important to get legal advice on your options.
